placing product from tecdoc webservice in vm shoppingcart
« on: September 13, 2013, 11:42:29 am »
Hello,

I have a small question about the integration of tecdoc in joomla virtuemart.

I use the tecdoc service to get product details from a car.
For example I type in the licence plate and the tecdoc service gives me all the carparts for this specific car.
In the tecdoc screen I can select a product to get all the details and pictures etc.

But how can i get these webservice products into the VM shopping cart??

I have been reading the SOAP documentation on dev.virtuemart.net but I dont find what i need.

Help would be great!!

Kind regards,


Maxim Pishnyak

Are you sure that tecdoc supports SOAP first of all?

At this point you need to import product information from tecdoc and export this to VM with the help of CSVI Improved.

Hello,

Thanks for your reply.

I dont need to import anything into my virtuemart catalog.
I just want to use the shopping cart functionality.

The products that are selected from the webservice need to be inserted as an order into the shoppingcart.
Since I want customers to browse the products in an wrapper that uses a tecdoc like portal.
In this wrapper the products show and there is an add to cart button for these products but after pressing the add to cart the products need to go into my virtuemart shoppingcart.
The payment and shipping is then handled by VM.

That is what i want to do.


Kind regards,

So you need to import something into tecdoc instead, right? What do you know about ability of tecdoc to receive import from VM then?

Hello,

I might not have explained it properly.

the webservice just provides the product info and pricing.
After selecting the products in the webservice the order data needs to be inserted in Virtuemart shoppingcart.
After this insertion into Virtuemart it should be handeled as an normal VM order so payment and customer registration happens in Virtuemart.


So i want to know how i can insert the data from the webservice as an order into Virtuemart.

Kind regards,

So you need some way to insert the product data from an iframe into the VM session so it can be added to the cart?

Never heard of anyone wanting to do that - and I have no idea how or even if it could be done.
